Price 39.99    Sea Trout fly selection in plastic fly box 


Each selection of forty Sea Trout Flies has been chosen to give a good range of patterns in terms of colour and style, in the most practical sizes of 10 and 8, for use by day and night on river and loch. 

Each sea trout fly selection is presented in a superb waterproof plastic fly box.

Sea trout Fly selection


Each set of forty sea trout flies, in sizes 10 and 8, has been selected from the following list of renowned patterns to provide practical variety for day and night sea trout fishing.  In river fishing, the smaller patterns will, in general, be of most use  in the early part of the night or in low, clear or warm water conditions while the larger patterns will come into their own in high, cold or coloured water or when fishing a deep pool late on a summer night.  On the loch, a big wave may require a big fly, though we might well bear in mind that sea trout fly selection is far from an exact science.

In addition, a boxed selection of Sea Trout Needle Tube Flies is now available in our online shop. When a longer, yet light and slim, lure is required - the needle tube fly selection is the perfect complement to the box of sea trout singles.

Sea Trout Fly Selection

Alexandra Sea Trout Fly

Introduced, under its old name, "Lady of the Lake", around 1860, the Alexandra was later re-named in honour of Princess Alexandra. Some doubt remains over its creator. Some say W.G. Turle of Newton Stacey, Stockbridge. Others, that it was devised by Dr John Brunton, a well-known member of the Gresham Fishing Society and inventor of Brunton's Fancy. So successful a fly was it that it is reputed to have been banned on some waters. Still a favourite with many sea trout men.

Dark Mackerel Sea Trout Fly

The Dark Mackerel was first introduced, as a sea trout fly, by Messrs John Dickson, of Frederick Street, Edinburgh, dressed on Martin outpoint hooks in sizes 8 and 6. It is a most useful fly, both at night and, in the daytime, for slightly dark, peaty waters. It also serves as a useful bob fly on the loch. A good all rounder.

Silver Stoat Sea Trout Fly

Derived from the Stoat's Tail salmon fly, this silver-bodied version, the Silver Stoat, has become one of the most popular of all sea trout night flies in use today throughout the British Isles. It is fished on floating and sinking lines. It can be tied on singles, doubles or trebles and as tube-flies, Waddingtons, snakes or needles. In the larger sizes, the hair from a squirrel's tail, dyed black, often replaces the hair of the stoat. The plain black hackle may give way to brighter colours of red, orange, yellow or blue, each fisherman with his preferred variant. All are successful. A truly great sea trout fly.

Mallard and Claret Sea Trout Fly

Generally attributed to William Murdoch, a celebrated Aberdeen fisherman, the Mallard and Claret is probably the oldest of the Mallard series of flies. In the words of no less an authority than Courtney Williams, writing in 1948, "For a general fly for any month of the year in fast rivers, for lake fishing or for sea trout, there can be few more universally popular flies. For sea trout, the Mallard and Claret is probably the most popular of all wet patterns, whether fished in the day or after dark."

Peter Ross Sea Trout Fly

Dating from the turn of the century and adapted from the teal and red by Peter Ross of Killin on Loch Tay, the Peter Ross is one of the most popular loch flies ever devised. A good tail fly. Also an extremely popular and effective sea trout fly on loch and river.

Black Pennell sea trout fly

Devised in the nineteenth century by H. Cholmondeley Pennell, the Black Pennell is particularly popular in the remoter waters of the Highlands. Commonly fished as a bob fly, it is especially good early in the fishing season when black midges are hatching. Effective, too, for loch and river sea trout.

Woodcock and Yellow sea trout fly

Probably the best of the Woodcock series of trout flies. Like the Pheasant and Yellow, the Woodcock and Yellow has a fine reputation among Scottish sea trout fishers.

See the full sea trout fly selection below (note that the specific patterns included in the selection may vary from time to time, depending on stock availability)

Sea Trout Flies

All sea trout flies in this selection are supplied by the old and well established Scottish firm of Napier and Craig, suppliers of quality trout and salmon flies to the Scottish tackle trade since 1880.
